July just started so we’re well an truly into Australian festival lineup announcement season; we here at PURPLE SNEAKERS are super excited to bring you the first round of acts scheduled to grace the stages of this year’s New Years Eve Lorne and Marion Bay FALLS FESTIVALS.
Alright let’s keep this short and oh so sweet… drumroll please! Here are the first 8 acts announced on this year’s lineup…
THE FLAMING LIPS
BOY & BEAR
SAMPOLOGY PRESENTS A FALLS ANNIVERSARY AV SHOW
+ MANY MORE STILL TO BE ANNOUNCED
FALLS FESTIVAL ticket ballot applications will close in a couple of weeks so make sure you get your name in HERE. You will have to enter even if you were in it last year so don’t miss out!
Here’s what festival organisers had to say about how the ballot works:
“Much like a lottery, lucky names will be randomly drawn from our cyber space hat. Anyone who entered will be notified of their triumphs or lack thereof by email.
Successful confirmation emails will contain a unique golden token to purchase tickets with. This is only valid for one transaction during the ballot tickets sales period or until the subscriber ticket allocation has sold out. Remember folks, more lucky tokens are sent out than there are tickets available, so tickets may sell out in the first few days of going on sale. Simply receiving a lucky token doesn’t guarantee a ticket. So, if you have a token and know you want to be at Falls this year, don’t sit on it. Remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public.”
Get nostalgic and check out the full and very impressive lineup from last year’s FALLS FESTIVAL HERE
